, is pretty simple. no budget, no pay. >> in the spotlight tonight, debt ceiling magic. that was house speaker john boehner after the house passed a bill making the debt ceiling disappear until may 18th, without cutting any federal spending. the stupidly named and conceived "no budget, no pay act" passed with a vote. 33 republicans voted against the bill, 199 voted for it. 86 democrats voted for the bill, 111 democrats voted against it. not only will the no budget, no pay act suspend the debt ceiling for about three months, it also requires the house and senate to pass budget resolutions by april 15th, and if they don't, representatives and senators will not get paid, which is of course, wildly unconstitutional. the 27th amendment prohibits congress from modifying their own paychecks in any way. they can vote to change the pay for future congress only, but republicans passing an unconstitutional bill, while at the same time relieving the pressure on the debt ceiling was welcomed by some democrats as republicans moving from out-right crazy to half-crazy. >> i'm not sure what happened at the hou

. and house nearly three months to raise the debt ceiling. >> look, i understand why they want to move the initiative forward and i think there is some strategicty to the way they're doing it it and i believe the second part the of it it, congress shouldn't get paid unless a budget is passed. no one wants to miss a paycheck certainly, but i think it's a very valid point and i think that it's not unfair to say to the people if you're not going to do your job, you shouldn't get paid. >> greta: and we keep getting these, like goal posts and mile posts and three more months. >> absolutely. >> greta: six more months and another excuse-- >> in fairness, i think it's the house. if they believed they could pass a bill out of house that not only dealt with the debt limit, but with our debt problem and passed out of the senate and signed by the president they would do it in a heartbeat. that's not what they're facing. they want facing a president that wants unconditional limits and the senate hasn't passed a budget in days. i think they're trying to make the best of a bad situation. absolutely w

the debt ceiling increase. just as it would be to raise the debt ceiling without any meaningful cuts, just as senator phil graham got back in 1985 i believe it was, with graham-rudman -- graham rudman and so many of the debt increases that accompanied that was part of the deal with restrictions on spending. there are so many things going on in the world today that are just staggering. we know we have secretary of state, hillary clinton, testifying today. one report here today says that secretary clinton quickly interrupted one senator that contradict him and stress that she did not see request for additional security to protect the benghazi mission. extremely unfortunate. that people in our state department committed to helping to this country would make cries for help over a period of months, over a period of years, even going back to when ambassador rice was with the state department, and people were killed an american embassy request had been made for extra security that went unheeded. here it came again and apparently there were a number of people that made requests, including one of t

colleagues for any kind of long-term inquiries in the debt ceiling. so let's get the process moving. no more brinksmanship, no more last-minute deals. the american people have already had to wait four years, four years for a budget from senate democrats. they shouldn't have to wait nearly as long for us to confront a debt that threatens the economy, our jobs and the future of our nation. yesterday, i laid out the remedies of the -- the realities of the fiscal challenges we face as a country. we've delayed facing them long enough. let's put the politics aside and finally do the work we were sent here to do. mr. president, i suggest the absence of a quorum. the presiding officer: the clerk will call the roll. quorum call: quorum call: the presiding officer: the senator from colorado. mr. udall: mr. president, i'd ask unanimous consent that the quorum call be lifted. the presiding officer: without objection, so ordered. mr. udall: mr. president, i also ask unanimous consent i be recognized to speak for ten minutes as if in morning business. the presiding officer: without objection, so ordered.

on the debt ceiling issue. is that a fair characterization? if so, was it a change of heart or a change of tactics? >> i didn't hear rand's comment as far as that is concerned. i think what the gop house conference is concerned about is how do we get forward during the next couple of months with an administration who just yesterday said he has a bold agenda going forward for the future. in order to have an agenda whether you're president of the united states or the ceo or cfo, you have to have a budget. we're saying the same thing the american public is saying to the senate, give us your budget if you want us to then go forward and continuously raise the debt limit. >> so you feel that this vote tomorrow will pass the house what do you expect the senate will do? they haven't been able to pass a budget in four years. >> there's a story that came out, i don't know how true this is, that senator schumer said democr democratic senators have been secretly planning on doing a budget for a long time. that's good and also coincidental that they were secretly doing a budget an we never knew anyt
